What I can't understand is where these trees came from. This field had a lot of them in it back when we cleared it out in about 1974 or 1975. Ever since then it has been in either an annual hay crop or beans/corn. In December 2010 I decided to create some wildlife habitat and planted fruit and oak trees in there. Honeylocust came from nowhere and covered it up. I know some seeds will lay dormant for many years but from 1975 to 2010???? That's 35 years?! \:\(

They spread via roots, so poisoning them is a good idea, especially with something that is root active, like imazapyr.

And yes, deer love the pods. But I would prefer just one tree!

I have often wonder if that is what they made the crown of thorns out of.

I have thought the same thing. Did the the honey locust grow over there during that time period?

I don't know how widespread they are worldwide, but my front tractor tires have several dozen thorns stuck through each tire. When I tried to inflate them out in the field, one tire had so many holes that the air was leaking as fast as I could put it in. The other had to be inflated twice to drive the 1/2 mile back to the house. It's hard to believe a thorn can be so strong to routinely puncture tires.

BSK, I didn't realize they spread by the roots. So it's the few along the fencerow that are the source then rather than long dormant seeds. You can bet I'll be after them with poison from now on. This field was 8 acres with honeylocust so close you could barely walk between them. That's intolerable.

they are pith-filled, I would not expect them to be so tough on tires, but I guess I can see one going straight in easily as sharp as they are.
